Future City Competition

Future City is a cross-curricular program that lets students in the 6th, 7th, and 8th grades do the things engineers do: identify problems, brainstorm ideas, design solutions, test and retest, build and then share the results.  The Future City Competition consists of five deliverables, or end products of the project. These deliverables document the team’s progress through the engineering design process and showcase the team’s city of the future. Teams are judged and scored on all deliverables.

Educators who register before May 1st will be entered into a drawing to win one of three $100 material stipends.  Click on the link for more information.
